Original title: Rick Perry accused of hypocrisy as he comes under fire for investment in America's largest pornography distributor
Leading Republican contender and prominent Christian candidate Rick Perry has been accused of hypocrisy after it was revealed that he invested thousands of dollars in the country's largest pornography distributor.
Just a week after he launched his presidential campaign, the Texas governor has come under fire for his investment in Movie Gallery, a company that rented pornographic movies.
In 1995, while serving as Texas' agriculture commissioner, financial disclosures reveal that Mr Perry bought between $5,000 and $10,000 worth of the company's stock.
The revelation is particularly embarrassing for the Republican candidate as the company was boycotted by the American Family Association, which hosted Mr Perry's high-profile prayer rally in Houston a week before he kicked off his campaign.
In potentially even more damaging allegations, Mr Perry is accused of signing into law bills that could have benefitted the pornography distributor.

So what, is what I say..
Wow, the nattering nabobs of negativity really have the “politics of personal destruction” machine working at full tilt.
LOL, he sold the stock same year he bought it. Funny how UK paper is discovering this stuff but not the US lame-stream media.
Depends on the definition of pornography. Some people think that kissing in public is porn.
Next thing you know, it will come out he invested in Blockbuster too!
Not a big deal. And I can’t stand Perry.
Do you really know anyone who considers kissing in public to be porn?
All I can say is that the fact her husband was part of the mob with a lock on New York City area pornography brokerage and sales didn’t hurt Geraldine Ferraro a bit.
Another BS Perry bashing article, even the left in the UK are scared of Perry.
So did he make money?
Is there no END of this man's business sense?
He is truly sent to us for such times as these.
Actually it isn't. In fact, that's the one that motivates Leftwingtards because, as it turns out, they love it.
Moslems obey a directive from Mohammad in the Koran to "kill the hypocrites" ~ and that causes them all sorts of problems since there's just so much hypocrisy to be seen in others by anyone at any time in any country.
Isn’t Romney on the board of Marriots which has xxx porn in their hotels? Think there will be an issue with that.
There has been so much about Perry the last few days one just has to wonder if any of is it close.
Whatever. I could care less. If he’s running against Obummer, I’ll vote for him. At least he isn’t Mitt Romney.
Can’t wait to be forced to take a government mandated vaccine.
Perry, population control’s favorite candidate.
I'm not crazy about Perry but this is stupid.
I read up on Movie Gallery and they appear to be just another rental chain unless I’m missing something.
